I am a PhD student of cell and molecular biology at the German Cancer Research Centre, and recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a Bachelors in Natural Sciences and a Masters in Biochemistry. Before this, I graduated from high school with 43 points in the IB Diploma, having studied Biology, Chemistry, and Maths at HL, and history, English Literature, and Chinese at SL.
I am an enthusiastic tutor with a great deal of past tutoring experience, both full time and part time, and in person as well as online. I am passionate about my subject, and about science in general, and enjoy spreading knowledge about it to others.
In my spare time, I play football and sprint competitively. I also enjoy watching football and motorsports.
I have experience tutoring students in biology, chemistry, mathematics, English, and history, and have also helped with university admissions.
I have worked in three different paid tutoring positions, both full time and part time. I have worked with groups and one-on-one with private clients, and have experience tutoring online. My clients have ranged in age from 6 to 18 years of age.
Apart from this, I have also worked as a volunteer tutor in less formal arrangements at school and university. These were generally with younger students in the same courses who benefitted from my prior experience of the syllabus.
I am trained to Masters degree level in biochemistry and molecular biology, and am undertaking a PhD in these subjects. I have first year undergraduate experience in chemistry (organic and physical), mathematical modelling, and statistics. I also studied physiology into my second year during my undergraduate degree. I have had experience tutoring chemistry, biology, and mathematics for the IB and A-level, as well as at GCSE/iGCSE/MYP level.
In addition to academic subjects, I have had first-hand experience with the US, UK, and Australian university applications processes, including UCAS and the Common App. I applied and was admitted to several medical programs in the UK and Australia, and can give advice on interviews and the BMAT. Other admissions tests I can advise on include the ACT in the USA, and the UCAT in Australia. I also attended interviews at both Oxford (Medicine) and Cambridge (Natural Sciences), and can give Oxbridge interview tips too.
